Quoted from henrydwh:

I saw 3 pins in Grumpy old men last night, but couldn't tell what they were. It was in the bar just before Jack Lemon storms out and has his stroke.

I just saw these also. The first ones party zone. Can't work out the race bike one or the other. Great movie BTW.

Champion! Thanks!
Grumpier Old Men has come on next. No pinballs yet. Sophia Loren is hassling Walter Matthau.

Barely visible Phoenix and Paragon, and Bally Star Trek way behind Corey Haim, in the comic book shop in "The Lost Boys".

Yes, I posted another screenshot from this movie a while back, there is a great side view of Paragon, just scroll back, it’s on here.

Surprised nobody has spotted this one in Old School. It looks like a Bally Supersonic with some of the backglass blacked out. Also front of cab looks a little different.

Wow, of all the times I've seen that movie and never noticed. The obvious ones in my days were in The Walsh's entry in 90210 Earth Shaker and of course the movies "Big Daddy", "Dodge Ball", "What Happens in Vegas" all had them in there living room or main area.

In episode 7 of season 3 of "Salvage Hunters: The Restorers" they repair a Gottlieb Domino:

The episode itself has a lot more footage.

#3011 2 years ago

German movie "DER UNFALL" filmed early in 1968.
A typical german "Wirtshaus" from that time in Cologne, with DODGE CITY - POT 'O' GOLD and A-GO-GO
Also a Rock-Ola-Box and some german gambling machines.
Actors - Manuel Galiana, Marius Müller-Westernhagen, Jürgen Flimm.

I was watching a new series on Netflix called "Virgin River" and the main character, a young nurse practitioner, was playing cyclone at a bar featured on the series. She was doing pretty good and her potential boyfriend, mentioned that maybe she should play competitively and brought up the Papa series on his phone to show her that there were tournaments. He showed her the screen on his phone with the home page for the Papa series and read the "mission statement" for the Papa series to her.

Sorry couldn't resist:

Wow, that show must be gripping with dialogue like the PAPA Mission Statement.

Young Sheldon S2 Ep3, 'A crisis of Faith'. In the bar scenes there is a pin in the background, possibly Flip Flop. Not sure.

PS1 Silent Hill (1999) - Not a movie, but was made into one later!

Backbox on that Medieval Madness is a LITTLE unusual, don't you think, Harry?

French Brigitte-Bardot-movie ET DIEU ... CREA LA FEMME from 1956 with Gottlieb's 1950 Woodrail JUST 21, a strange machine with a circus-theme but a space-age-cabinet.

“Live and Let Die” (1973) with James Bond inside the Fillet of Soul establishment in Harlem. Going to need help identifying the two pins.

BTW, just before the pins are shown, I love the lines when James orders a drink:

Bond: "No ice."
Waiter: "That cost extra."
Patrons: laughing

Left one has been identified as Dixieland: https://pinside.com/pinball/machine/dixieland

Right one looks like a shitty Williams One PLayer like Rock N Roll/Jive Time or Big Star/Superstar.

Right on both counts - it's shitty and it's Super Star!

From "Fart: the Movie"(yes, that's the movie's name). This guy has quite the collection. I see Fun House, Simpsons, Millionaire. Can't quite picture the other 4.

Dale Jr has a Comet in his studio and it might be the same one in his dad's living room in an interview from 1986

Based on its topper, the one all the way on the right appears to be Pin*Bot.
